  2. 2. Wave Energy Converters : An experimental approach to onshore testing, deployments and offshore monitoring

    Author : Liselotte Ulvgård; Mats Leijon; Jonny Hylander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave power; ocean energy; linear generator; measurements; sensors; point absorber; offshore; PTO; force; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The wave energy converter (WEC) concept developed at Uppsala University consists of a point absorbing buoy, directly connected to a permanent magnet linear generator. Since 2006, over a dozen full scale WECs have been deployed at the Lysekil Research Site, on the west coast of Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expansion Governance of the Integrated North Seas Offshore Grid

    Author : João Gorenstein Dedecca; Paulien M. Herder; Rudi A. Hakvoort; Amineh Ghorbani; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Energy Union; expansion planning; governance; HVDC; myopic optimization; North Seas; offshore grid; offshore wind; simulation;

    Abstract : The expansion of offshore power transmission and generation in the North Seas of Europe is accelerating rapidly. This is due to several drivers, including the decarbonization and reform of the European power system, and innovations in offshore wind and high-voltage direct current transmission. READ MORE

  4. 4. Influence of multiple welding cycles on microstructure and corrosion resistance of a super duplex stainless steel

    Author : Vahid Hosseini; Leif Karlsson; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Super duplex stainless steel; autogenous TIG welding; multiple welding thermal cycles; sensitization; nitrogen loss; sigma phase; ferrite content; production technology; Production Technology; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Super duplex stainless steel (SDSS) has found a wide use in demanding applications such as offshore, chemical and petrochemical industries thanks to its excellent combination of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Welding of SDSS, however, is associated with the risk of precipitation of secondary phases and formation of excessive amounts of ferrite in the weld metal and heat affected zone. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling of Granular Materials

    Author : Aylin Ahadi; Mekanik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydraulic engineering; Civil engineering; materialteknik; Materiallära; Material technology; binary mixture model; simulations; material modelling; finite element; granular materials; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The aim of this doctoral study is to develop and implement a material model for granular materials. The course of this work was concentrated upon a non-associated plasticity model with yield surface and the flow potential expressed in terms of the mean stress p and the third stress invariants I3.
